SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) — Wesley Fields rushed for 93 yards and a touchdown, helping Georgia Southern beat Texas State 15-13 on Thursday night.
Georgia Southern led 15-0 before Texas State’s second-half comeback.
Texas State got on the board with 59 seconds left in the third quarter. Keenen Brown ran for 61 yards before getting tripped up at the 4 and he punched it in on second-and-goal to pull to 15-7.
Jeremiah Haydel caught a 29-yard pass in the corner of the end zone to make it 15-13 with 2:20 left, but the Bobcats’ 2-point conversion attempt fell incomplete. Georgia Southern recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.
Fields powered in a 5-yard touchdown run to open the scoring in the second quarter for Georgia Southern (5-1, 3-0 Sun Belt), which has won four straight.
